BIH Multi Omics Lectures

Lecture 3: MSTARS and New Developments for Mass Spectrometry-Driven Proteomics

Lecture 3: MSTARS and New Developments for Mass Spectrometry-Driven Proteomics

On 16 September 2021 Prof. Ulrich Keilholz (Charité Comprehensive Cancer Center - CCCC) and Dr. Philipp Mertins (Proteomics Platform, BIH and MDC) gave a tandem talk on the newly established BMBF-funded MSTARS ("Multimodal Clinical Mass Spectrometry to Target Treatment Resistance") consortium. After a brief overview, Prof. Keilholz explained the advancement of precision medicine through the establishment of a mass spectrometry-based platform in clinics. Dr. Philipp Mertins highlighted new developments for mass spectrometry-driven proteomics and presented applications in the field of hematological and head and neck cancers that also connect to a project within the translational Multi-Omics Hub of the BIH.

Moderator: Dr. Fabian Coscia (Spatial Proteomics, MDC)

Lecture 2: Novel CAR Designs and Therapeutic Applications

Lecture 2: Novel CAR Designs and Therapeutic Applications

Friedmund-Neumann-Preisträgerin und iFit-Mitglied Dr. med. Judith Feucht (University of Tuebingen and the University Children's Hospital) presented her latest research results regarding CAR T Cell Therapy on 23 September 2021. Recent advances have focused on enhancing CAR T cell functionality by calibrating strength of activation to prevent T-cell exhaustion and to augment functional persistence. Feucht presented novel CAR designs that pre-empt T cell exhaustion and enhance memory formation. Using established models of senescence, Feucht and her team could also show that novel CAR T cells eliminate senescent cells and restore tissue homeostasis in different diseases such as advanced liver fibrosis, thereby opening novel treatment strategies for solid tumors, inflammatory and age-related diseases.

Moderation: PD Dr. Annette Künkele (Charité - Klinik für Pädiatrie)
